The fifth volume in this highly acclaimed series, conducted by The Sixteen’s associate conductor, Eamonn Dougan, celebrates the music of Polish composer Marcin Mielczewski. Together with Bartłomiej Pękiel, Mielczewski was amongst the most notable of 17th-century Polish composers and was recognised as a leader among his contemporaries.

Influenced by the many Italian composers who graced the Polish courts in the 1600s, Mielczewski was a prolific composer. The cross-section of works recorded here shows an exceptionally accomplished musician at work, one
whose music deserves a wider audience and who can confidently stand alongside the maestri who came before him and from whom he learnt his craft.

“This craftsman's masterful music is presented here with an assured charisma by the mighty Sixteen. Eamonn Dougan draws typically golden performances.” - Gramophone on Bartłomiej Pękiel (COR16110)

“The latest in The Sixteen's fascinating Polish project... these performances are pristine, carefully blended and appositely devout in flavour.” - The Sunday Times on Grzegorz Gerwazy Gorczycki (COR16130)
